From Al Gore’s extended rant about climate change in Sunday’s New York Times:
From the standpoint of governance, what is at stake is our ability to use the rule of law as an instrument of human redemption.
There’s lots more looniness in Gore’s article, but this takes the biscuit. Walter Russell Mead’s fabulous beatdown of Gore bears repeating:
I think Al Gore failed the climate change movement and that his negligence and blindness has done it irreparable harm.
That’s exactly why I hope Big Al keeps talking: he’s the best weapon climate skeptics have going for them.
